I currently have a Yahoo! Plus e-mail account, and am trying to import all of my e-mails and contacts nto my new Google Apps GMail account. I believe I know how to import it, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a utility that would convert folders to labels and retain group e-mail lists.

CONTACTS:
Export to CSV.  Import from CSV.
Google's page:

Nice step-by-step for contacts here:

MESSAGES:
GMail can fetch mail from normal POP and IMAP accounts.
Yahoo does not support POP or IMAP.

There are some workarounds for accessing Yahoo via POP/IMAP, 3rd-party add-ons, but may not be supported.

I figured out how to import the mails: http://www.zoliblog.com/2007/10/24/simplified-guide-to-importing-all-your-archive-email-into-gmail/

But for the contacts, I'm looking for an easy way to import contact lists, I got all the individual contacts.

Export as CSV file from Yahoo.
Import CSV file into Gmail.

See the link above for method.

The CSV file shouldn't require any editing.

are you able to open the CSV file and look at it?

The Gmail format is listed here:
http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=12119

Make sure the file is saved as CSV.  If it is an Excel file with the ".CSV" suffix, it will not work.

The CSV file format is just text.  You can open/edit it in Notepad or any other text editor.

There is no way to import groups along with contacts that I could find, I ended up manually adding them.

I see.  I didn't understand that you wanted groups.
